About the event: Right now we're in an age where no organization - be it governments, corporations, or nonprofits - is safe from cyber attack. So how should we respond? Catching attackers earlier matters, and understanding how to react to potential threats is key. Learn how infosec professionals investigate, remediate, and communicate with Chris Hendricks, Principle Consultant and Co-Founder of Counteractive Security. 

Join our workshop on Tuesday, February 18 in IAB 402 as Mr. Hendricks discusses Cyber Threat Hunting 101: Threats That Make it Past Controls & How to Counter. He'll provide an introduction to cyber threat hunting, what a career in the field looks like, the skills one needs to be a successful threat hunter, and real-life scenarios of incidents he has faced, with an opportunity for Q&A towards the end.
